Elon Musk Sales NFT
Tesla’s new engineer Elon Musk announced on Twitter on Monday that he would be selling a song on NFT as NFT. At the time of writing, his tweet has received 42.7 million comments and 176.2 million likes. His 2:20 minute video has been viewed over 8.5 million times.
Musk’s techno number briefly describes the essence of NFT. The video shows a rotating trophy from the Rocket Museum with repeated words written on the base: HODL and computers never sleep. Other words around the trophy make the Vanity Trophy shine, and the words are repeated:
NFT, for your vanity.
Computers never sleep.
It’s confirmed. It’s guaranteed.

On Twitter, many people have expressed interest in buying Musk’s NFT, with some even writing down how much they are willing to pay. Among those interested was Tron founder Justin Sun, who simply stated: That’s it. I’ll pay for it.
Artist Mike Winkelmann, also known as Bipple, is one of those involved. He recently made headlines when his work NFT sold for $69 million at a Christie’s auction. He wrote: I’ll give you $69 million for it. Musk replied: 420M doge. Beeple responded quickly: Sold.
However, it’s unclear if Beeple was serious about his suggestion, and at the time of writing, Tesla’s tech guy hasn’t responded. Dogecoin is currently valued at $0.058043, which is equivalent to 420 million Dogecoins worth less than $24.4 million.
Shortly after Musk sent out his first tweet about selling NFT, the first $3 bid appeared on Valuables, a platform that publishes Cent to buy and sell tweets like NFT.
Currently, the highest bid for Musk’s NFT is $1,121,000, placed by Twitter user Sina Estavi, CEO of Bridge Oracle. He tweeted to Musk: Elon Musk, I made an offer to buy Twitter. Musk did not respond to his tweet.
In addition, tweets from others related to Musk’s sale of NFT are also offered. NFT Inception. Someone just bet $88 on the NFT of this tweet that someone bet $100,000 on the NFT of this tweet from @elonmusk on a song that is NFT on NFTs. The world has gone mad, tweeted Twitter user Chairman (@wsbchairman), joining in on the offer.
You can own this tweet signed by Elon Musk on the Valuables @cent platform powered by Polygon. The current bid for the NMT title is $1.12 million.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey is also using the Valuables platform to sell his first tweet. Estavi is currently the buyer with the highest price, offering Dorsey $2.5 million. The sale takes place on the 21st. March is coming to an end, and Dorsey says he will immediately convert the proceeds into BTC and donate them to Give Directly’s Africa Response Fund.
